Title: Crack The Code - My First Python Project

(15m) After 2 weeks of learning Python, I began creating my very first Python Project with Code Institute as part of the Diploma in Software Development. This is a command-line interface game based on the classic Mastermind board game. I would love to talk to you about this project and the journey I undertook with Python to complete it.

About Ciara

I decided to learn how to code in September 2021 as it has been something I have wanted to try for a very long time. I fell in love straight away! My background is in Psychology, Teaching, and Art. I have spent almost 20 years as a carer supporting people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. I currently work with adults who have sustained an acquired brain injury and am mainly involved in facilitating their art groups. I have 2 amazing kids, a gentle old soul of a cat, a bossy Jack Russel, and a very supportive partner.
